I've had my pool redone and up and running for about 2 months now. I hear all around you should run your pool pump an hour per 10 degrees. My water is just about to hit 80 degrees. (In Phoenix Arizona)
Now I've only had my pump running about 2 hours a day and I brush the walls and vacuum the bottom about once weekly. So far the water has been very clear, been doing my best to keep chlorine, ph, etc.. levels where they should be and everything seems perfect.
So my question is what is the real downside to not running your pump enough? Is there something that I'm missing? Just seems running my pump 4 times longer everyday would be a huge waste of energy and money.
I'm no pool pro so let me know what you guys think
